For those of you who are not aware, Dwight and I support GreenePets Foster Network, Inc. and the dogs in that rescue.
We have no foster homes, so our kennels serve.
We are currently taking in dogs who have potential as K-9 officers with adequate training.
This program is extremely costly to us, as the dogs actually belong to GreenePets Foster Network, Inc., an organization that does not have any money to pay kenneling expenses while the dogs are in training.
We have a very small volunteer crew who help as much as they can, but almost all of them are holding down full time jobs as well.
Our K-9 Trainer: Scottie Greene
We have been very fortunate to meet Scottie, and he us. As anyone can tell you who works 12 hour days and lives with three dogs, it is really hard if you don't have a facility available to help out. This is where we started.
And then...things started to happen. Besides Scottie working his own dogs, and his Sunday dog club, we received an opportunity to help a couple of dogs from the West Coast that were going to loose their lives, primarily because they were Belgian Malinois, and since the Bin Laden take down, the West Coast is breeding Malinois like popcorn pops.
You wouldn't think that breeding them was a bad idea, except for one thing. These dogs have been bred for an enormous amount of time as working class dogs. They normally do not make great family pets, unless you have a wonderful sense of humor, enormous energy, and don't care about stuff in your house, car, truck, other pets, sometimes children, visitors, or anywhere/thing else they can decide to investigate, disassemble, or flat out destroy. This is all in the day of a Maligator...
